Avoiding Conviction In Identity Theft Cases

It may not seem like a serious crime, but you do not want to be convicted of identity theft. Many identity theft offenses carry mandatory minimum prison terms.

When a crime has a mandatory minimum sentence, the only way to stay out of prison is to avoid being convicted of the offense or to negotiate a plea agreement to face a lesser charge. Defendants can not only face criminal prosecution, but could also be sued in a civil action and face significant financial liability.
